Adam II (Marvel)
Real Name:
Search for 'Adam II (Marvel)' on Amazon

Powers:
Adam-II possessed enhanced strength, endurance and durability.

Bio:
Adam-II, like the Vision, was a synthozoid created by Phineas T. Horton in 1946. Horton created Adam-II in the hopes that he would be able to improve upon his earlier creation, The Human Torch. Adam-II unfortunately, didn’t possess any of the Torch’s honorable ambitions. Adam-II felt superior to all organic life, imprisoned Phineas and created an android based on him to keep any suspicions from being aroused.

Creating an army of android servants, Adam-II sought to take over the world by kidnapping and then replacing John F. Kennedy. Upon visiting Phineas, The Human Torch and his sidekick Toro realized the deception, and Adam-II revealed his true intentions to the duo, hoping to form a partnership with the Torch. Refusing, a battle ensued and Adam-II was able subdue both the Torch and Toro and trapped them in water tank with Phineas. He was unaware that shortly after the Patriot (Jeff Mace) rescued all three.

The All-Winner’s Squad, now alerted to Adam-II’s plans, tried to stop him. Captain America (William Naslund) and Bucky (Fred Davis) encountered Adam-II, and as Naslund went to summon the rest of the Squad, one of Adam-II’s android servants crushed him to death. This led to Jeff Mace, upon finding Naslund’s body, taking on the mantle of Captain America to rally the Squad. Adam-II tried to run down Mace using Kennedy’s car, but skidded on oil from one of his androids, and was destroyed when the car crashed and exploded.
